Volkstedt Polychrome Scenic Saucer

This is a superb saucer made by Volkstedt in the 18th century. It is the nicest piece in terms of scenic painting I have ever seen by them so it was a must have for me :) The entire well of the saucer is hand painted with a polychrome scene including a couple and lots of greenery. The style reminds me very much of a Ludwigsburg pieces I owned so I guess the painter was at both places which was a common thing to do! The porcelain along the rim has a ribbed design to the paste with a gold trim to the edge. The saucer displays nicely but it has heavy wear to the gold trim, a little wear to the scene and a long hairline as shown with a star crack to the center. It is still a very special piece for this maker I think. The piece is marked underneath with the crossed hayforks mark as well as a black number 678 which is likely a later collection addition. The saucer is 1.375 inches tall and 5.625 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or photos.

Price is $299
